Team News: Oxford United's Deane Smalley fails fitness test

Oxford United forward Deane Smalley fails to recover from his hamstring injury in time for this afternoon's League Two clash at home to Rochdale.

Oxford United forward Deane Smalley has failed to recover from his hamstring injury in time for this afternoon's League Two clash at home to Rochdale.

The 24-year-old forward missed last weekend's 2-2 draw with Wycombe Wanderers, having limped out of the U's 3-1 win over Torquay United seven days earlier.

He was expected to return for today's match at the Kassam Stadium, but failed a late fitness test. Sean Rigg and Jon Meades also remain on the sidelines for Oxford.

Meanwhile, Rochdale forward George Donnelly returns for the visitors after missing last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Plymouth due to the birth of his son. Defender Peter Cavanagh serves the final game of his three-match ban.

Oxford: Clarke, Newey, Wright, Kitson, Constable, Potter, Hunt, Hall, Whing, Rose, Mullins
Subs: Raynes, Williams, Davies, Marsh, Crocombe, O'Dowda, Ruffels

Rochdale: Lillis, Bennett, Lancashire, O'Connell, Rose, Vincenti, Brian Barry-Murphy, Lund, Henderson, Donnelly, Hogan
Subs: Thomson, Eastham, Gray, Hery, Vidal, Done, Bunney
